Who owns your business' intellectual property?

This event was led by Jonathan Perlmutter, Head of Intellectual Property at Birkett Long.

Jonathan talked about identifying and protecting your business' intangible assets. 

The initial ownership of an intellectual property object tends to, but does not always, reside with its creator. 

The circumstances in which this may not be the case can variously be situations such as employment, undertaking work under contract, producing work in an educational context and/or other such scenarios. 

Because there are often multiple, overlapping types of intellectual property right in a creation, the ownership situation can become complex.

Jonathan is also offering free initial consultations to anyone who would like to discuss further.
